politically incorrect

a spanish commercial come on the television and football asked me if i could translate it for him. when i said 'no', he asked 'why not? i thought you were mexican.' *laughing* so much about this interaction is funny, in a really politically incorrect kind of way (the first being that i am white).

things that don't grow back

football asked if a finger is cut off would grow back just like teeth?

it is cold in here?

both boys have always called hair conditioner 'air conditioning'. it struck me as particularly funny *this* morning and i had to share. :)

presidents and teddy bears

my good friend has a daughter who has always been a character. she makes me laugh on a regular basis. recently, she and her mom had a conversation about the four president on mount rushmore. she was naming them, george washington... thomas jefferson... teddy bear roosevelt... abraham lincoln. no, that's not a typo - president teddy bear roosevelt. lol.

a friend posted this on facebook: i just found out that if you say "gullible" REALLY SLOWLY, it sounds like "oranges".

after trying it out (c'mon, you know you did too), i told it to football. he said 'guillible' three times before saying, 'mom, you're just trying to trick me'. hahaha. he gets his intelligence from me.

the girl i'm going to marry

my sister and i were talking with my nephew, hockeyman (7), about getting married when he grows up. both my boys say they will never get married but hockeyman says that he will get married when he is 25 to a 'hot girl who is kind' and they will have 2 children, '2 boys... or 2 girls... or maybe a boy and a girl'. plus she needed to be a christian so they 'could celebrate holidays and greatness and stuff.' i can't wait to meet this girl.

momma said a bad word

from 2008 - while talking with some friends last night, i remembered a funny story regarding me and the boys. actually, it's a little more embarrassing (for me) than it is funny, but i'll share it anyway. we were heading out of town for the weekend. football and artist were in the backseat. i was the front passenger. bfp was driving behind The. Most. Annoying. Driver. and i said, 'man, what a f*cking idiot'. laughter erupts from the backseat. shoot! as i am getting ready to correct my mistake, football says, 'hahaha... mom said a bad word. mom said 'idiot'.' and they both crack up again. i have to say i'm glad they focused on that bad word and not the other.

violent kid

from 7/1/09 - football said 'i am going to make this baby chick bleed' as he was stabbing his fork into ...
an over-easy egg. :) as the 'baby chick' bled all over his plate, he smiled his one-less-tooth smile because he lost his third tooth today.
